Professional speed dating

2) Instructions: Announce to your group what speed dating is, why you’re doing it, and to respect the clock.If you like what you hear a more in depth discussion can be had after the rounds during the “smack down”.

The first time I attempted the Speed Dating exercise I decided to stray from the recipe in the Joy of PL recipe book.
